Welcome to I Love to Cook

Cooking is something I have always enjoyed. I learned to cook at the apron strings of my mother and grandmother. The experience of cooking brings me both pleasure and peace of mind.

Herbed Baked Eggs from Cooking in College (http://thecollegiatecook.blogspot.com/)

I found this great recipe on a blog (http://thecollegiatecook.blogspot.com/)  this morning before I started breakfast.  I have to give full credit to Meghan Smith, who adapted the recipe from Ina Garten.  I had to try it.  Of course I took a few liberties with the recipe and since there was cheese I had to use alot more than was called for.  I hope everyone enjoys this and gives a visit to Meghan.

  • Garlic chives
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Eggs
  • Cream

Preparation & Cooking Instructions
  • Crack the eggs into a prep bowl and set aside
  • Chop rosemary, thyme, garlic, chives, & cheese - the quantity of each is to taste but remember that rosemary and garlic can be strong and over powering.  Approximately a 1/4 tsp of eachis plenty

  • Pour approx. 1tbl of cream into the ramekin and 1/3 of the chopped ingedients
  • Place the ramekin into the broiler and allow the mixture to start to bubble
  • Immediately add the eggs to the bubbling mixture
  • Sprinkle with the remaining cheese & herb mxture on top and place back into the broiler
  • Cooking time s about 5 - 6 minutes, NOTE: the cheese may start to brown if it is too close to the broiler
  • Allow the eggs to sit for 1 minute after removal from the oven.
